Wild Camping Trips

I’ve never camped before – do I need any special skills?

No special skills are needed – camping is for the most part common sense. A pragmatic attitude helps & your Guides are there to help you with all aspects of your experience.

What equipment do I need?

Attached to your confirmation email will be your ‘Kit List’. The items listed are for guidance only but provide a good list to follow for a comfortable camp. Of course, you can ring or email us at any point to get professional advice and guidance.

What does 'all inclusive' include?

The 'all-inclusive' events include a two-man geodesic tent, inflatable sleeping mat & your sleeping bag. Dinner & breakfast are freshly prepared meals & included in your price as well as your evening wine (red or white). Tea, coffee & sweet treats are also included throughout your time in camp. Of course your sit-on-top kayak, paddle & buoyancy aid is provided & all of our events are Guided by full-time professional Guides. Kit lists are available on each individual event booking page as too what you should wear whilst paddling (and more to the point, what NOT to wear).

What about the toilet?

Your 'trip details' email will have an attachment titled 'LEAVE NO TRACE' & dedicated to this important topic. Please read through it carefully & follow the guidance. NSK operates a simple 'Carry in, Carry out' policy ensuring the hygiene of our guests & cleanliness of the environment we enjoy. Our Guides are experienced & have developed & honed their techniques over years of operations in environments around the world; follow their guidance & don't hesitate to contact NSK & ask questions. We are all very happy to share our experience & skills with our guests.

What clothing will I need?

Your clothes is split into two areas; wet clothes for paddling & dry clothes for the campsite, all layered for warmth & easy venting when it gets warm. Keep it simple & keep your gear to a minimum. Your 'trip details' email following your booking & your guideline kit list provide all the information you need.

Will there be an open wood fire on the beach?

Your Guides will either bring dry wood in with the group or have a ‘stash’ of wood on the beach. Alternatively, driftwood is collected on some beaches. Your Guide/s will build, start & manage the fire for you & we maintain safety standards such as building & maintaining small fires, not burning refuse, & a six-step process to put our fires out & clear the area. NOMAD Sea Kayaking follows 'Leave No Trace' policies. (L.N.T.)
